Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My daughter picked this book up at a book fair because she likes Magic Tree House, and because she loves dragons. It is a good story, but the cover is very misleading. The dragon on the cover is mentioned in only one or two sentences, and Jack and Annie are never face-to-face with it (as is shown on the cover). The whole time we were reading we kept waiting for the "dragon part" of the story. This book's cover really needs to have Jack and Annie holding a golden dragon statue because that is what the story is actually about. I feel like this cover is a book's version of 'click-bait'.
